How to find out if you are entitled to compensation for a damaged knee
In May, 1936, the famous golfer Earnest Whitcombe, a Ryder Cup golfer, was suffering from a knee injury which might have prevented him playing in the Open Championship at Hoylake in the following June.
“I was doing a thing I have done a million times, just teeing up a ball,” said Whitcombe. “As I was bending somehow I slipped over on one knee. Now I am suffering from a strained ligament and can just hobble about on 2 sticks. I am having a massage twice a day but my doctor is not sure if I will be able to play in the tournament.”
